Tomatada com ovos

This is a recipe my mother used to do frequently in the summer, when peppers and tomatoes abounded in her garden!

You will need (for 2 persons):
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 peppers sliced
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 garlic glove finely chopped
  • 3 medium/4 small tomatoes peeled and chopped
  • 100 gr bacon (in cubes)
  • 1 tbspoon olive oil
  • 1 laurier leaf
  • salt and pepper q.b.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In a large frying pan or a wok, heat the olive oil, in medium fire.
  3. Add the bacon and let it cook until it is slightly crispy.
  4. Add the onion, the garlic and the peppers.
  5. Allow to cook for 3/4 min, until the onion becomes translucid.
  6. Add the tomatoes and let it cook for 5 more minutes (or until the tomatoes are soft).
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Transfer the vegetables to a oven proof dish.
  9. Using a table spoon open two small holes in the vegetable mixture and deposit the eggs there.
  10. Take to the oven for 10/15 min (until the eggs are done).
  11. Serve with toasted bread or white rice.
Bom apetite :)
